Yates was/is an elite pro with incredible genetics. I saw that interview. He is talking about his training at the pro level.
I also heard him say he is in and out of the qym in about an hour. He uses massive weight that the average joe would only dream about. I think it is a good reason to warm up to his final set.
He was also on steriods and GH
Dr.Ken once said when you are 200 pounds of rock solid muscle then worry about your rear delts.
Having said that there are reasons why one would want to do more direct work.I had a job where I had to use my arms to reach out in front of my torso for long periods of time. Once in a while I would a more direct exercise for the rear delt and mid back.
Sometimes my shoulders would round forward from that.

If you stand against a wall or door frame with your elbows up and back inline with your shoulders. Bend you elbows. Picture a reverse push ups. So your forearms and hands are in front of you.
Walk your feet out about a foot. Press your elbows into the door frame or solid wall and do a few reps. This is a good exercise for your rear delts and mid back that you can do at home.
Be careful. To make if harder walk your feet out further from the wall.
